South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is apologizing again. This time with a Sunday op-ed column in the largest paper in S.C. — The State.
In response, the chairwoman of the S.C. Democratic Party, Carol Fowler, issued the following statement, which I just love:
Mark Sanford’s vague apology in Sunday’s papers is fine as far as it goes, but he doesn’t say what he’s apologizing for. Turning his back on the people of South Carolina? Abandoning his family? Dumping his responsibilities for weeks? Or 6 1/2 years of ignoring our public schools and the children in them? When my children were small and had to say they were sorry I always made them specify what the apology was for, to be sure they knew. Does Governor Sanford know?
